This specific application closed on April 2, 2022; however, students may still reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss extenuating special circumstances.
Special circumstances are anything that differentiates the family's finances from those of other families. Reasons for a professional judgement request may include (but are not limited to):
- Recent unemployment
- Recent death of wage earner
- Recent change in marital status
- Recent unusually high out of pocket medical expenses not reimbursed by insurance
- Other significant, measurable, and involuntary changes in financial circumstances
**Please note that a Professional Judgement request does not guarantee approval. In addition, even if approved, the recalculation of FAFSA data does not always result in an increase of aid eligibility. If the professional judgement is not in your favor, it will not be processed.
If you have questions about this process, please email email@example.com.
